TRIESTEDramatically lying in an amphitheater along the coast and on the slopes of the karst hills, the Roman Tergeste, after a long ordeal with the powerful Venice, lived its most prosperous period, perhaps in the 700, and then in the next century, when Charles VI the declared a free port (1719) and Maria Theresa of Austria nell’emporio transformed. The city is then enriched with baroque buildings such as the church of S. Maria Maggiore, and especially Carciotti neoclassical Palace, the Old Stock Exchange, and the famous castle of Miramare, built for Maximilian of Hapsburg. In Trieste beloved by Umberto Saba, where the bora blowing gusts raging, still exudes that air that inspired the great Central European intellectuals.
